The stories range in length from one sentence to several pages. Most are funny, engaging, and witty stories with a twist. I particularly liked "Julie and the Warlord" which describes a blind date with a warlord who Julie met on an online dating service and a story about of group of friends attempting to stage an intervention in the age of Facebook. Novak offers a perceptive and poignant look at human emotions. I recommend the audiobook for the variation in voices and BJ Novak’s sense of humor in reading his own stories. The audio is available via audiobook CD or for download in Overdrive.
Along the way, Carrie meets Jack Finnerty, a gruff handsome man that keeps showing up at all of the weddings around Savannah. Their Goldendoodle puppies, Poppy and Shaz, play a comical role in the lives of Carrie and Jack and their romance. While there are some bumps along the way, you definitely root for Carrie, Jack and her flower business. I especially loved all of the intricate descriptions of flowers and wedding details. This perfect light summer read with a guaranteed happy ending
